Mike and Laura’s love story began a few years ago after he walked from California to Florida. It took him two and a half months, but it was worth it. He met her walking her dog in a park. “She was totally out of my league,” he told me with a beaming smile, but they finally talked.”It’s the first time I’ve put roots down anywhere.” Now, they’re traveling together across the US. He brought her here because it’s one of his favorite spots. “I hope it stays this warm,” she said. “I really love the people here. I’d love to stay.”

Photography isn’t just about capturing a moment; it’s about capturing personality and a story. After graduating from University of Denver with a criminology degree, Stephanie Tyson wasn’t a hundred percent sure what she wanted to do. A summer spent photographing the zipline at the Colorado Adventure Center in Idaho Springs, decided her passion for photography can’t be ignored for the “practical” approach of a life in the office. Born and raised in Colorado, she is no stranger to the beauty that this state has, both in landscape and in people. Her heart lies with the ocean, and when she gets the chance, you can find her sitting on the shore line shooting surfers all day. During the summer, there’s a good chance she’s exploring or hanging out on the fence line at a rodeo with her camera. All other times, you can find her in Starbucks, curled up with her cat, or at the archery range.
